Stu Stone (born Stuart Eisenstein on November 17) is a Canadian film, television, and voice-over actor as well as a producer of TV/film and music. Stone also has toured as a comedian and rapper. In March 2009, Stone was named one of the "10 most innovative on the web" for his groundbreaking work on The Sunday Nite Stu, a live streaming show and his TSM Radio Show, recognized as the longest running podcast of all time. He was also named one of the most influential Canadians of all time in the Macleans magazine 110th anniversary issue.


Early life and acting career

Stone was born Stuart Eisenstein in Thornhill, Ontario. He started his acting career at age 2, and appeared in some Canadian TV commercials as a child actor in Toronto. He made his major motion picture debut in Heavenly Bodies as Joey, Samantha Blair (played by Cynthia Dale)'s son, in 1984. Since then, he has guest-starred in many TV series such as Goosebumps, Boston Public, and Flash Forward. He starred in animated features such as Babar: The Movie and The Magic School Bus as a voice-over actor. He has also done voice-over work for Care Bears, and voices both main characters in the Canadian cartoon Carl Squared. He also had a role in the cult films Donnie Darko and The Boys Club. After graduating highschool, he moved to Los Angeles, California to continue his career in acting.

Music career

Stone's hidden talent for rapping was "discovered" at the first public screening of Donnie Darko at the Sundance Film Festival in 2001. As the projector in a screening caused trouble, he jumped on the stage and started rapping and dancing to audience. He also created his own freestyle character "Stu the Jew" there. When his accidental rap debut was well received, he got an idea of starting a band to pursue a music career. That was the moment his local LA band "The Stone Movement" was born.

On July 27, 2001, the band debuted on stage at the world-famous Whisky a Go Go in Hollywood and had been playing to sold-out audiences on the California club scene ever since. Stone was a lead vocalist in the band and they mixed "a little rock and pop and hip-hop and underground" to create a whole new brand of music.

Blowin' Up

In 2006, Stone and actor/comedian (and also close friend) Jamie Kennedy starred together in the MTV reality show Blowin' Up, which showed the journey the two went through to create a hit rap album and "blowin' up". After the show aired its finale, the album Stone and Kennedy created was released, which was titled Blowin' Up to correspond with their reality series, and both also appeared on the MTV show True Love. The album featured guest appearances from Houston rapper Paul Wall and Bay Area rapper E-40, as well as actors Bob Saget and Jason Biggs.

Stone has been known to tour off and on with Kennedy on his stand up tours, performing songs from the Blowin' Up album, as well as the song "The Left One", featured on Kennedy's Unwashed album. Shows on these variety are routinely opened by comedian Bill Dawes, and at times have had guests, such as Saget at a November 17, 2006 Las Vegas show.

Stone recently completed a tour of Iraq and Kuwait with Kennedy, Dawes, B Boy Casper, DJ Joey Nicks and Paul Wall. "Circle Circle Dot Dot" recently went to #1 on YouTube. The Lego-themed video sparked new life into the Blowin' Up project. As of summer 2008, it is one of the most viewed videos ever on the site, with over 10 million views.

Solo projects

Stone is also released his own album, as noted on his internet radio show, TSM (The Stone Movement) Radio.
